+ 0 Votes Thankless? Depends on where your job satisfaction Mr.Wiz 7 years ago comes from. I've been working in IT support for about 12 years now and I love it. The satisfaction I get is from within and knowing that I've provided a good product to the users I support. I don't need to hear the meaningless words that others want. + 0 Votes Technical Support mrwizard10 7 years ago Is like peeing in a dark pair of trousers...you get a warm feeling initially, but nobody notices...then it just is cold, wet and miserable once again. + 0 Votes I'm just Thankful CaptBilly1Eye 7 years ago that I have not been 'outsourced.' :-) My thanks comes in the form of seeing users being able to do new things with their systems, overcoming problems, and me just plain feeling needed. (you're welcome to read my Bio). Hey... R U in SC? Who do you use? ;-) anyway... Thanks for the kind words of understanding! + 0 Votes Bad attitude at the managerial level CharlieSpencer_Palmetto 7 years ago You're supposed to think all tech support employees are darn lucky to have jobs, and that they probably spend most of their workday surfing for porn. Didn't they tell you that at the "Pointy-haired Bosses Seminar"? :-) It's nice to know someone in the upper echelons has an appreciation for what goes on in the trenches. Thanks for the kind words. What part of SC are you in, or what kind of barbeque do you like? + 0 Votes I got my thanks . . Thanks mjd420nova 7 years ago I have nurtured my users and cultivated others to help. But when the flames get too high, they call the fireman. I have a big yoyo painted on my truck, 'cause I'm always getting jerked around. Two weeks out of every 12 I get vacation. I'd go nuts if it wasn't for the woods and GPS. + 0 Votes Technical Support mrwizard10 7 years ago Is like peeing in a dark pair of trousers...you get a warm feeling initially, but nobody notices...then it just is cold, wet and miserable once again.
